  1. This episode we're talking about characters and tropes. Let's talk about the dead spouses (mostly wives) and dead parents in the cosmere. Well, dead fathers in non-cosmere works, but hey. We talk about the Lost Lenore trope as well as fridging, and a good bit of poking fun about all the dead wives in Brandon's works. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Grace (thegatorgirl), Shannon (Grey), and Matt (Comatose). In two weeks we will not have our usual episode. Instead, on Saturday, June 6th, we are going to be celebrating 17th Shard's ten year anniversary. We opened our site on June 4th, 2010! Wow. So to celebrate we are going to do a live Shardcast episode on our Twitch channel ( https://www.twitch.tv/17th_shard ) at 11am Pacific. It will be an extra long time with tons of different cast members. And, if you're a Patreon supporter, you'll be able to submit questions ahead of time for the stream. Don't worry, we'll post the VODs on YouTube and we'll answer questions from chat, too, and do some fun stuff!

  2. You know how we say on Shardcast that we don't need rails? Well turns out we rarely had rails to begin with. Today we are taking a look at our old cosmere theories. And when I say old I mean real old, like from 2008, pre-Hero of Ages. We'll talk about some fandom history on the forums, tell you how we got into the fandom, and mock old our old theories all around. Then at the end we'll give you some advice on how you can theorycraft better. Hopefully you'll enjoy this retrospective, and I imagine eventually we'll do another one of these! If you want a Google doc with our posts so you can read the theories in full, check out here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/10gjOYZtQG8OActlRHaaTstOy0eiS5lLZLBQ5f7ri8d0/edit?usp=sharing And if you want an etiquette guide on how to talk in debates or contentious discussion, check this out, written by Matt: https://www.17thshard.com/forum/topic/89580-best-practices-for-posting-in-debates-or-contentious-conversations/ This episode we have Eric (Chaos), Matt (Comatose), Evgeni (Argent), and David (Windrunner), all fandom old timers!

  4. Well, we are all in quarantine, so we wanted to do some fun nonsense to take our mind off things. So it's time for some more Ship it or Rip it! We ask the real questions here, like "what is kingdom," will Shannon continue her commanding lead from last time, and will Eric be just as terrible at this game as before? Our cast today is Eric (Chaos), Shannon (Grey), Matt (Comatose), Ben (Overlord Jebus) and Grace (thegatorgirl).

  5. This episode, we're talking about the history and cultures of Sel, featuring sharks! Well, somewhat. Today we have the debut of the Shardcaster Benny. What's a Svordishman's favorite weapon? A Svord, of course. Okay, but really, there's a lot of interesting history and lore on Sel, and it'll be pretty cool to see Elantris sequels someday. We have Benny (the Happy Shark), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), Marvin (Paleo), and Joshua (jofwu)!

  6. This episode, we're talking about the Shin! Who are they? They *invaded* Roshar? The Stone Shamans? Well, there's stuff we know, but also even more we don't...

  7. This episode, we discuss our Rhythm of War (now the confirmed title of Stormlight 4) predictions! Or at least, we recap where our characters last were, and go through our hopes for each character one by one. We don't really know what the soul of this book will be. So hopefully you find this one enjoyable? We have Eric (Chaos), Alyx (FeatherWriter), Shannon (Grey), and Matt (Comatose)!

  8. Though I feel like he has been discussed and dissected more then even 7th grade biology class would have, I'm surprised that we haven't gotten a shardcast specifically on Hoid. I mean he may be something of a minor character so far but he does spark Some interest amoung the readership
  9. This episode we are talking about the sapient types of spren, and what we know of their societies and culture! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Grace (thegatorgirl).

  10. It's time for yet more from the Starsight release, where we actually go a bit faster through the Words of Brandon this time. There's even some actual things related to Skyward and Starsight, whoa! Oh, and don't forget the random destiny tangent we forced Ian to take us on. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), and Marvin (Paleo)!

  11. Whoa, even though there was no Starsight tour, the release gave us a lot of crazy Words of Brandon. We go deep in the weeds this episode. But first, Eric has to tell everyone about his fiance, and we also discuss an Eshonai reading from Stormlight 4. Oh, and no big deal, Brandon finished the rough draft of Stormlight 4. Exciting stuff this episode! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), Grace (thegatorgirl), and joining for the first time, Marvin (Paleo)! Our next episode won't be two weeks from today, but it'll be next Friday! Hooray!

  12. It's time for a very loopy and entertaining podcast on the Horneaters. We talk about their origins, their culture, Rock and his mysteries, and more. And it is sometimes a little silly sometimes. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Shannon (Grey). Shardcast is the premier podcast on Brandon's works, Stormlight Archive, Mistborn, and all of the cosmere, run by the mega-fans at 17th Shard. We strive for high-quality discussion and analysis and accuracy, but if we missed something, we're sure you'll comment below!

  13. Yesterday, State of the Sanderson 2019 came out (read it and vote here: https://www.brandonsanderson.com/state-of-the-sanderson-2019/) and we're here to talk all about it. We discuss the Stormlight 4 Release date and more! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Grace (thegatorgirl), Joshua (jofwu), and David (Windrunner).

  14. There is a ludicrous amount of stuff to talk about on today's Shardcast. First up, we show off Crafty Games's metal Mistborn dice, which are awesome, then we dig right into the Nalthis Star Chart, which has some... anomalies, you could say. Then we get more of the Stormlight 4 Prologue and confirms what we were thinking last time. Then Harmony, there are so many Words of Brandon from Brandon's trip to Israel and Prague. We get stuff on Dawnshards, Cultivation, avatars, and we get into the weeds. And Rafotory. Obviously. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and David (Windrunner). Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]
  15. It's time to talk in-depth about maybe the weirdest Shard of Adonalsium: Autonomy, and its Vessel, Bavadin. There sure is a lot to discuss that have huge cosmere implications, from avatars, Trell, Patji, sand mastery, and Taldain. It's crazy! Also crazy but not unexpected: Ben's terrible pronunciation. This episode also contains possibly the most salt-inducing Who's That Cosmere Character yet. Evgeni isn't a sand master, but he sure might be a salt master. This week we have Eric (Chaos)--and you should not doubt his prowess of Shard intents; Evgeni (Argent), salt master; Grace (thegatorgirl), the quiet one; and Ben (Overlord Jebus) the First Germ.

  16. It's been forever since we've done a Who's That Cosmere Character megasode, and so here another one is. This one has some hilarious moments and salt all around. Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected] This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Ben (Overlord Jebus), Evgeni (Argent), and Joshua (jofwu). Thanks to Ben for editing this one!
  17. White Sand Volume 3 is out, and so it's time for our last White Sand podcast for a long time. Will it be as salty as our White Sand 1 and 2 podcasts? Well... actually, things end on a reasonably high note! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), and David (Windrunner). Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]!

  18. This week, we're bringing you DragonCon's Words of Brandon, and it's pretty spicy! You'll learn about the future of White Sand, VaxFax, Threnody's perpendicularity (!), and, of course, the... Dawnshords. Yup. Oh, also Argent's very interesting pronunciation of skaze and hoed. We have Eric (Chaos), Evgeni (Argent), David (Windrunner), and Grace (thegatorgirl).

  19. Recently at DragonCon we got a reading of the Stormlight 4 prologue, and we also got Stormlight 4 Update #5. We go into depth on the Stormlight 4 stuff today! We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (Weiry), Ben (Overlord Jebus), David (Windrunner), and Grace (thegatorgirl). #freedavidshat. Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]!

  20. Today we are talking about the Iriali, the strange gold-skinned people in Iri. We're talking about their religion, the Seven Lands, the One, and more! And you know what we talk about more? Kurth. A lot. You could say we were kurthed to talk about it. Did you think there was enough to talk about a single city? Apparently! This week we have Eric (Chaos), Grace (thegatorgirl), Evgeni (Argent), and Ben (Overlord Jebus).

  21. We're finishing up our discussion myths this episode, starting with a bunch of Hoid stories, like Derethil and the Wandersail, Queen Tsa sleeps with the moon, and Fleet. Then we finish off with Parasaphi and Nadris, and briefly mention the Ten Fools and what's up with them. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Grace (thegatorgirl). Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]!
  22. It's time we discussed some myths of Roshar, and let's dive into one of the biggest ones first: The Girl Who Looked Up! We're talking about both versions of the myth--both Shallan's and Hoid's--and then... well. We kind of go off the deep end a bit. How is Allomantic gold relevant to this? You'll find out, sort of. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Grace (thegatorgirl). Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]!
  23. Now it's time for, shockingly, a podcast that isn't on Roshar! We're heading to Nalthis, the world of Warbreaker, and we're here to discuss some of the most important individuals on that planet: the Five Scholars! These are early cosmere scholars and researchers of Awakening, and you know, one of them created this little thing called Nightblood. I'm sure it's not that important... So refresh yourself on all of what we know on the Five Scholars, the Manywar, and more! This week we have Eric (Vasher), Ian (Yesteel), Evgeni (Denth), David (Arsteel), and Grace (Shashara). Well, at least until I killed her. Look, it had to be done. Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]!
  24. This week we actually talk about the news, a brand-new Stormlight 4 reading! Then we discuss Cultivation and her plans. We carefully stay on the rails this time, even though we kind of go into the weeds with Cultivation's maybe-magic system. Come join us on this episode and maybe you'll grow some in your knowledge of Cultivation! Hah, get it? Okay, I'm done. We have Eric (Chaos), Ian (WeiryWriter), Evgeni (Argent), and Grace (thegatorgirl) this time. Skip to 25:51 to skip discussion on the reading. Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]!
  25. This might actually be the funniest Shardcast yet. This time, we have a random number generator pick a pair from about a hundred cosmere characters. Two teams must argue whether they should be shipped, or we should rip that ship. The best part is making people suffer arguing for really awful ships. Or maybe Alyx judging a certain Renarin ship... You won't be sad tuning into this one. This week we have Eric (Chaos), Grace (thegatorgirl), Alyx (Feather), Shannon (Grey), and Matt (Comatose). My apologies to Grace who I let down immensely in this episode. Send your Who's That Cosmere Characters to [email protected]!
